Patna Travel Guide

Patna, the capital city of Bihar, in its modern avatar is a chaotic city, doing little to live up to its past glory as the seat of learning and culture. Once called Patliputra, the city has a rich historical past and has seen rise and fall of many empires. It traces its heritage 3000 years back to its founding as the capital of the great Mauryan and Gupta empires.

Situated on the southern bank of the River Ganges, Patna today is a sprawling business town teeming with people and is the gateway city for the Buddhist circuit. So travel to Patna and explore its historical allure first hand.

Rich in culture and heritage, Patna is home to innumerable ancient monuments that reflect its glorious past. Scores of tourists visit Patna all year round.
